Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(4), 310–311. Reviews the book, Cognitive Psychology: Thinking and Creating by John R. Hayes (see record 1979-20255-000). It is a book quite different from many others currently available in its scope and point of view. The book begins not only with philosophy, but also with introductory chapters on behaviorism and Gestalt psychology. The book is basically about problem solving and many interesting problems are given in detail and are carefully explained. The book has breadth, wit, depth, and humor. It is entertaining, readable, informative, and memorable. Its organization offers the clear imprint of an experienced and sophisticated writer quite familiar with his material. But it offers only simple, adulterated methodology likely to seduce the uninitiated into lax thinking. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
